The Interreg V-A Romania-Hungary Programme is pleased to announce the list of the first 19 projects selected for contracting and over-contracting after the 1st Open Call, worth a total of more than 22 million EUR, ERDF.
The 1st Open Call was launched on December 29, 2016, for the following investment priorities: Ip 6/b – investments in the water sector, Ip 6/c – natural and cultural heritage, as well as Ip 5/b – disaster management and was open until June 30, 2017.
The applications received have been evaluated in accordance with the approved methodology for assessment and selection, and the list of projects selected for financing or for over-contracting was approved by the Monitoring Committee (MC) during its 3rd meeting, held in December 2017, in Szeged, Hungary.
At the MC selection meeting, it was decided to grant the entire financial allocation of the Call for projects submitted within Ip 6/c – natural and cultural heritage and Ip 5/b – disaster management. At the same time, MC decided to relocate funds, from Ip 6/b – investments in the water sector to Ip 6/c – natural and cultural heritage, which increased the allocation for the Ip 6/c with more than 4,8 million EUR, ERDF.
Information on the selected projects for funding, including those applications on reserve lists, can be accessed below.
The lists contain projects that may be over-contracted, subject to a favourable opinion from the competent ministries in both Member States.
Under this condition, for Ip/6/c – natural and cultural heritage, the total amount allocated to the 11 projects selected for contracting and over-contracting is of 13,792,512.94 EUR, ERDF while within Ip 5/b – disaster management, for the 8 projects, the value of the allocation is of 8,927,418.50 EUR, ERDF.
